Baldwin Adds AWS Products Via Distribution And Manufacturing Alliance With Thermal Care
Press release from the issuing company
October 26, 2007 -- On October 23, 2007, Baldwin Technology entered into a distribution and manufacturing agreement for the products of the AWS Division of Thermal Care, Inc, Niles, Illinois. Under the terms of the agreement, Baldwin has secured exclusive distribution and marketing rights to the AWS product line of fountain solution and ink temperature control systems for the graphic arts markets of North, Central and South America. AWS products will now carry both Baldwin and AWS branding, and key AWS sales and technical support staff have joined Baldwin at its Customer Support Center in Wood Dale, Illinois.
“AWS is a highly respected brand, with a large installed base of systems throughout North America,” says Shaun Kilfoyle, President of Baldwin Oxy Dry Americas. “AWS products fit our strategy to offer a broader range of complementary solutions and services to our existing sheetfed and web OEM, dealer and end-user customers in the Americas. The distribution and marketing agreement for AWS products provides an effective counter-measure to adverse currency volatility. The agreement with Thermal Care gives us an alternative local source for water and temperature control systems currently manufactured at our Competence Center for commercial sheet-fed and web products in Friedberg, Germany.”
